Visions Of The Lite

LP (Item 53772) Cotillion, 1982 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 11

Non-stop grooving from Slave – a record that has them losing the lead talents of Steve Arrington, but not missing a beat! As with Showtime, the sound here is a nicely smoothed-out approach to the bassy funk the group helped forge at the end of the 70s – a more soul-based sound that still keeps things funky, yet which also stays away from the tricks, gimmicks, and too over the top sort of styles that were hurting some groups at the time. There's plenty of great bass parts and snapping drums, all next to filtered harmonies on the vocals that sweeten the album in just the right way. Titles include "Do You Like It Girl", "I'll Be Gone", "Friday Nites", "Sweet Thang", and "Be My Babe". (Cover has some wear.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Payback
Polydor, 1973. Very Good- 2LP Gatefold
A masterpiece of funky soul – and one of the greatest albums of the early 70s!
